HUAWEI Y9a announced with MediaTek helio G80, 64MP quad-camera, and 40W fast charging

Huawei did not launch any new products at IFA 2020 like its sub-brand Honor. However, the company does have a few products up in its sleeve waiting to go official for global markets. One of them, HUAWEI Y9a, has now been announced quietly as a tweaked version of HUAWEI Enjoy 20 Plus that was launched in China recently.

It is worth noting that this is not the first time we are hearing about this phone as its name was already mentioned in two separate lists of upcoming Huawei devices and even its promotional poster leaked last week.

HUAWEI Y9a Specifications

The newly announced HUAWEI Y9a sports a 6.63-inch FHD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) IPS LCD panel on the front with a 92% screen-to-body ratio lacking any notch or punch-hole. That’s because the phone’s 16MP selfie camera sits in a pop-up module.

Unlike the Enjoy 20 Plus which is a 5G smartphone powered by MediaTek Dimensity 720, this one comes with MediaTek G80 SoC paired with 6GB/8GB LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 storage based on regions it is sold. If needed, the storage can be further expanded via Huawei’s proprietary NM SD card.

The phone runs EMUI 10.1 based on Android 10 with HMS (Huawei Mobile Services). It includes all the necessary sensors such as gyroscope, compass, gravity sensor, ambient light sensor, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Further, the device will be backed by a 4,200mAh battery with support for 40W fast charging in the Middle East, Africa, and some countries in Middle Asia. Whereas, in other regions, it will feature a 4,200mAh battery and will only support 22.5W fast charging.
